zkIgnite 3: ATLASPAD

Atlaspad introduces the first and only trustless Cross-Chain ZK Launchpad, leveraging zero-knowledge proofs to facilitate secure and private transactions across multiple blockchains. This innovative platform addresses the challenges of privacy and high transaction costs in DeFi by offering users the ability to:

– Participate in presales of upcoming projects without disclosing their investment size or strategy.
– Stake assets within a privacy-preserving ecosystem that connects with Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and Mina Protocol.
– Validate transactions and prove asset ownership without revealing sensitive information through a novel Merkle tree-based architecture.

By enabling discreet and efficient asset movement across chains, Atlaspad sets a new standard in the DeFi space where privacy and cross-chain functionality coexist seamlessly.

In today’s cryptocurrency landscape, launchpads play a crucial role in facilitating crypto asset transactions across various scales. However, existing launchpads are often centralized or decentralized structures limited to a single network. These structures face challenges related to security and privacy, with concerns about abuse and data security breaches.

Atlaspad aims to address these issues by providing a fully verifiable and anonymous system, enhancing user engagement within the MINA network. With a dedicated developer team and expertise in zero-knowledge proofs, Atlaspad seeks to revolutionize cross-chain DeFi transactions while prioritizing user privacy and security.

Mina Navigators is poised to establish a groundbreaking standard for ZK developer engagement, urging innovators to embark on the journey of creating, refining, and contributing to the Mina ecosystem.

Timeline

There are three distinct phases within the Navigator program:

  1. Hackathon: October 9 through November 10
  2. Learn-to-earn challenges: November 2023 through April 2024
  3. Final contribution grant: April 30, 2024
Phase One

In Phase One, known as The Navigators Hackathon, commencing on October 9th, a five-week hackathon unfolds. Outstanding submissions during this period stand a chance to receive MINA token grants and a coveted 'Navigator' badge—a symbol of acceptance into the Navigators program. Those adorned with the badge qualify for Phase Two, engaging in monthly challenges to accrue grants.

Developers are tasked with constructing functional and efficient proof-of-concept applications and tooling for Mina. This endeavor aims to spotlight their ingenuity and technical prowess across diverse use cases on the Mina platform.

Judging involves a panel of seven individuals from the Mina ecosystem. For more comprehensive information regarding grants, submission criteria, and the judging process, the Navigators hub offers detailed insights.

Phase Two

In Phase Two, the Navigators embark on the Build and Learn-to-Earn journey (or, as they humorously term it, Navigate-to-Earn). This marks the initiation of the enjoyable phase. Post-hackathon, Navigators engage in collaborative efforts, either on their personal projects or those of their peers from the hackathon. Their active participation in a 6-month series of challenges positions them to earn monthly grants, facilitating an accelerated learning experience on ZK, Mina, and o1js.

Phase Three

As Phase Three unfolds, the Navigators, having invested six months of unwavering dedication and hard work, seize the opportunity to present their contributions. A panel of community electors becomes the discerning audience, evaluating these endeavors for the coveted grand prizes of MINA grants. Notably, these prizes distinguish themselves by being non-project-specific, emphasizing individual contributions spread across various projects and GitHub repositories.
